Tom and Christy Mayes are the new owners of TCM Auto Services on Outer Highway 10. The 1,500 square foot auto shop was previously Johnny’s Auto Body and according to Tom Mayes the new shop owner is “a dream come true. reality ”.
Mayes grew up in the area. Together with his wife, Christy, he attended Yucaipa High School and has family throughout the Yucaipa Valley, Calimesa and surrounding areas.
“I grew up here and people know me,” Tom said. “This is where I’m comfortable and where I want to be.”
Tom said his biggest supporter of getting his own auto garage business was his beloved grandfather Harley Roberts. There is a picture of Grandpa Harley hanging above the waiting room at the auto shop.
“Unfortunately, we lost him a few weeks ago,” said Tom. “It was he who always told stories about his grandson. He taught me a lot as a kid and gave me a great work ethic.
And that work ethic is something Tom and Christy are proud of.
“Anyone who knows Tom knows his honesty,” Christy said. “He has a good, honest reputation and tries to make it work.”
“I’m not trying to get rich, I’m just doing what I love to do,” Tom said.
The waiting room is clean and comfortable with satellite TV for guest enjoyment. There is even a shuttle service that serves the Yucaipa, Calimesa, Redlands, Banning and Beaumont areas.
TCM Auto Services is a “one stop auto repair shop”. If tires or finishing work is required, Tom will make arrangements with the customer for the work to be done. The four bays allow the employee to work on up to six different cars at a time.
There are three employees at TCM; Tom, Christy and apprentice auto mechanic Kevin Kamachi.
Tom has been trained in numerous automotive facilities over the years, which has given him invaluable practical experience.
His first professional automotive job was with Mitsubishi Auto, where he learned bumper-to-bumper mechanics.
Some of TCM’s specialties include; brakes, belts, diagnostics, tune-ups, water pumps, shocks, struts and maintenance services (mileage).
“If I can do it honestly at a fair price then things will work out,” Tom said. “I live by the golden rule – treat others as you want to be treated.”
Tom says the work rate of $ 60 an hour is “the lowest in town” and he believes it should continue that way.
